TALE OF THE TAPE: MARCH 12


Saturday, March 12, 7:00 p.m. Allstate Arena

Chicago looks to make the most of its final 16 games as the regular season hits the homestretch. A Calder Cup playoff berth is still on the line for the Wolves, who need to: 1.) overtake fifth-place Charlotte in the Central Division standings, and 2.) post a better win percentage than the Pacific Division’s San Jose Barracuda in order to earn the Western Conference “crossover” spot.

The Amtrak Rivalry continues tonight as Milwaukee visits Allstate Arena for the second time in a week. In fact, Chicago and Milwaukee are squaring off for the fifth time in 16 days. Milwaukee swept a home-and-home series last weekend, posting a 1-0 overtime win at the Bradley Center on March 5, followed by a 5-2 triumph at Allstate Arena on March 6.

The Wolves are winless in five games (0-2-2-1), but have earned points in 3 of those contests and have the good fortune of playing 10 of their last 16 games at home.

By The Numbers

17.0: The Wolves averaged 17.0 shots on goal during their two-game series at Charlotte, producing their second-and third-lowest shot totals of the season. The Wolves have been outshot in 6 of their last 8 games, averaging 24.6 shots during that span.

20: Home points for TY RATTIE (8G, 12A), who leads the team in that category, just head of captain PAT CANNONE (12G, 7A).

230: Milwaukee represents the most common opponent in Wolves history as the two sides meet for the 230th time tonight.

.944: Winning percentage (8-0-1-0) for home teams in this year’s Amtrak Rivalry series.

Player Spotlight

Zach O'Brien

Zach O’Brien, Ty Rattie 

ZACH O’BRIEN is doing his part to jump start the Wolves offense, settling into a 3-game point streak. During that time, the St. John’s, Newfoundland native has figured in 3 of the team’s 5 goals.

O’BRIEN scored his eighth goal of the season Thursday night at Charlotte when a fortuitous deflection landed the puck on his blade for an easy one-timer. O’BRIEN also showed nifty hands in tucking a shot inside the near post against Milwaukee netminder Marek Mazanec in a Feb. 26 road game.

TY RATTIE is contributing to the scoring column as well, earning an assist Thursday against the Checkers and scoring a rare short-handed, penalty shot on March 6 versus Milwaukee.

RATTIE, who captured the team scoring title as a rookie and has never placed lower than third, currently resides fourth in Wolves scoring, totaling 28 points (11G, 17A) in 46 games.

Player Spotlight

Saros-Save-960x600

#74 Juuse Saros – Goaltender

The Milwaukee Admirals are rolling and goaltender Juuse Saros is rolling right there with them.

The 20-year-old Finland native has recorded wins in his last five decisions — excluding Tuesday’s game against Rockford where he gave up three goals early and was pulled. Marek Mazanec came on in relief and was given the loss.

Saros leads all rookies with a 2.34 goals-against average and is fifth in the AHL. He also leads the league with four shootout wins. Saros was selected by the Predators in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
